While I was in high school contemplating a career path, chiropractic was one of the options I was considering. Because I was living in the Silicon Valley at the time, I chose technology instead. I spent my college years in Dallas and Austin working in the IT field while completing my degree. My life then took an unexpected turn as I suffered a traumatic brain injury. The road to recovery was difficult but I was able to persevere with the help of great doctors, therapists, and my family. It was then that I decided to give up technology and “give” back as I entered chiropractic school.
I started my chiropractic school journey in 2010. Fortunately, I was in the perfect time and place to meet my amazing wife Dr. Kim as I was her “student” doctor at the time. Fast forward to today and 3 beautiful kids later, I must say that I am truly blessed. Being in a position that I can help my patients live a healthy and pain free lifestyle is extremely rewarding. I believe that the body can heal itself naturally without the use of drugs or surgery for most musculoskeletal issues. For those that are afraid of the chiropractic adjustment, I also have a license to perform chiropractic acupuncture as well.
My life outside of the office is even more rewarding than my life in the office. My family and I love traveling, trying new cuisines, and experiencing every single facet of life we can. I am an avid golfer and honestly believe I missed my calling. So now I will be living vicariously through my kids as I hope one of them can fulfill their own dreams of being a professional golfer one day.
My journey to chiropractic has been a long and adventurous one, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana and lived there for 21 years. After graduating high school I attended Our Lady of Holy Cross College to start my career in nursing school. I realized after 3 years that my calling was towards pregnancy and pediatrics but not through being a nurse. That’s when I moved to Houston, Texas in 2007 to be with my family, who relocated here due to Hurricane Katrina. I continued my education at Houston Baptist University where I received a Bachelors Degree of Science in Kinesiology. I wanted to be able to help people regain their health through nutrition and exercise and not rely on medicine. After being a personal trainer for a few years, I decided there has to be more I can do to continue to help people further.
Enter my introduction to chiropractic care. After much research, meeting chiropractors, and my first chiropractic adjustment I was changed. I attended Texas Chiropractic College in 2011 where I met my husband Dr. Tran and graduated in April 2015. My eyes were opened to so many amazing things, but mostly my passion for pregnancy and pediatrics was reignited. Yes! I can finally utilize my original passion for pregnancy and pediatrics but through chiropractic care.
I continued my chiropractic education through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) where I received my pediatric certification from the Academy of Chiropractic Family Practice's Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics (C.A.C.C.P). I am also Webster Certified and Activator Basic certified. I couldn’t imagine going through my pregnancies with Genevieve "Evie", Penelope and Emerson without chiropractic care. I also made sure the kids were well adjusted after they were born. My mission is to spread the knowledge and benefits of chiropractic care and health to families. I truly believe health begins before we’re born so I love taking care of families from preconception and beyond!
Of all the privileges in my life, being a mom is the greatest. Dr. Tran and I do everything we can to make sure our kids live a happy, healthy and full life! We love taking the kids on family vacations, the park and food excursions. I also love vegan baking, practicing reformer pilates, using my Cricut (crafting), all things oily (Young Living) and reading.
Originally from Virginia Beach, VA., my family transferred out to Kansas City, MO where I recently moved from in September. I am new to living in the Houston area, but no stranger to visiting TX or this city. I love the city life, there is always something happening. Oh, and the food options are awesome too! My hobbies and interests include traveling when I can, especially to a sunny beach. I love trying new foods, as well as cooking! I am a sneaker head and enjoy fashion. I like styling myself to take pictures of the “fits” and shoes. I am also a Biology student and would like to pursue a masters in Anesthesiology. I have worked as a Chiropractic Assistant before in KC, and not am the Office Manager for Integrated Chiropractic and Wellness. I am happy to be a part of the Integrated Chiro family. We have great patients and a great environment to be in!
